Rating: ****
Comment: As announced on my bib overalls blog (f/m, but mainly girls and teen girls, currently rating 6), there are some few boys and girls in (shiny) shorts, too.

At least a boy, I think handicapped, in oversized pink shorts in s3e24, a boy in dark blue shorts in s2e20, 2 white stripes. And a girl in black or similar shorts in s3e37.

Some older teen girls playing Basketball in  red shorts but probably not shiny (s1e6).

For now, rating 4-5 only due to the few and brief scenes.

They sometimes wore costumes in the studio, also on my western blog, rating 5.

Comment: One teen boy, I think Mikkel Bratt Silset (pic 1) sitting in colorful, long board shorts. Also some other boys at an indoor pool including one in oversized medium blue swim or board shorts. Another one in black. I think few and brief scenes near the beginning only and most from a distance.

So rating 4-5 only. Directed by Erik Richter Srand. English title: Sons.

Interesting plot, but there are much better movies. Movie rating also ~4 only.

Comment: Michael McGreevery (I think the older boy Arthur on the right in blue shorts) and Bill Mumy shirtless in swim shorts. Of course these 60s shorts are not really shiny.

I don’t remember the complete movie.

For shorts, rating 3-4 only. Movie maybe higher. I like Billy Mumy.

Comment: First a young girl in purple shorts (YouTube vid missing upper and lower parts), a lady in tight, silver shiny shorts and some more men, women and boys (partly shirtless) in shorts (mainly board shorts) and or swimwear, but I think mainly or only from a distance.

To those who prefer females. I haven’t noticed any good scenes for me. Typical movie of it’s kind. There are better ones. The silver shorts are rather plastic pants and not really shiny shorts.

So rating 2-3 only.

Update: Kidsongs

kidsongs-nursery-old2kidsongs-nursery-old

As announced on my bib overalls blog, I found some more scenes.

At least girls in pink, purple and red shorts (not sure if all are shiny). Girl in red shorts doing rope jumping in song “Skip to my Lou”. Also a boy in red shorts playing Baseball. Another boy in medium blue shorts, but probably not shiny. Maybe some more.

Pics 1+2 are from the song “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” (1985), pic 3 I think from “This Old Man”. Songs are available on different DVDs including A Day at Old MacDonald’s Farm. Recent vid of the official YouTube channel.

I still haven’t rechecked all episodes for shiny shorts and swim shorts (especially the Kidsongs TV Show). Great series with handsome boys (Kyle and others) and good songs.

Rating~6-7 for this scenes.

Main entry, rating 8 (same for the other blog, f/m)

Comment: Some boys and teen boys in shorts, shiny shorts and speedos including shirtless scenes, also in shiny shorts. A blonde boy in red Adidas shorts (is it Adidas ?), another older boy in medium blue 70s style tight shorts (also shirtless, sitting and cycling). Younger boys in white, light grey and/or light blue shorts. Maybe not all shorts are shiny.

Quite interesting movie but could be better.

Rating 5-6. I think not on DVD.

Comment: Redhaired Todd Bosley in medium blue and also in black or similar shiny shorts. Both pairs are, I think oversized. But he also has thin legs. His underwear can be partly seen under his black shorts.

Also a girl in yellow shorts, but not shiny.

Another girl in dark blue shortalls, also a woman in overalls (other blog, rating 5).

Great movie. Handsome blonde boy (Kristopher Kachurak), but I think not in shorts.

Rating 5 for the shorts, much more for the movie itself.

Comment: At least 7 or 8 yo Meeno Peluce (“The Bad News Bears (1979)”) in medium blue swim shorts, also in jeans shorts in s2e1 “Married”. Not sure about the fabric. Probably not shiny. But quite interesting 70s swim shorts.

I don’t remember all episodes. Maybe more actors in shorts?

I don’t like him much. He’s also very young.

So rating 3-4 for now only.

Comment: At least this teen boy in blue swim shorts in an indoor pool. I found a brief clip on one of my VHS recordings, some time ago and I don’t remember in which episode. Maybe also some more actors/actresses in other episodes?

Interesting series. As usual many guest stars. I remember few episodes, most notably one starring Eddie Karr (probably not in shiny shorts). I sometimes confound this with “Touched by an Angel (1994)”, another interesting series with a different black lady, which needs to be checked as well.

Rating 4-5 for this episode. Needs to be rechecked.

Update: James at 15

Next to the perfect swim shorts scenes of Lance Kerwin (rating 10, TOP rank #4, see my TOP 10 pic on the right coloumn) and the locker room scenes, I also found some more PE scenes on YouTube (episode Champions). I didn’t knew that they are on YouTube.

Several shorts and also sitting scenes, including light and dark blue, white, red and grey. Probably not all shiny. Lance Kerwin also in medium blue speedos in the pilot.

I still haven’t checked all episodes. Rating ~7 for these shorts.

Also soon on my bedroom and pigtails blog.
